This concept was inspired by the idea of using fashion as a medium to bring awareness to ocean pollution and its impact on marine life and our beaches.
Our story takes place on Dead Horse Bay, a deserted, post-apocalyptic-Esque shoreline less than an hour outside of Manhattan.
From the wind-chime sound of the waves rolling over countless pieces of broken glass to the absence of human or animal presence, no set-design or prop-styling was needed to fabricate what was already an authentically eerie environment. The narrative follows our protagonist through a disturbing “Ocean Wasteland“; her experience and expressions meant to portray a range of emotions from distress to disgust to resolute. Each piece of the wardrobe was custom-made entirely from recycled plastics by our stylist and costume designer, Kim Mesches.
